Unobtainable Machines

Post by retrojc » February 28th, 2011, 11:23 am

Like the title suggests, what Arcade machines would you love to own/ but have sturggles to find or are impossible to find?

I'll start off, here's a couple i'd love but i've never been able to locate...

Konami Windy II

Image

Never seen one available in the UK, but the wiring being a noob has put me off.


SNK Super Neo 29

Image

Have seen one pop up, but i was beated to the finnsish.


A couple fo fothers, but i guess they're my most wanted.

Unobtainable Machines should be like Unobtainable Women - i.e not a cat's chance in hell..

Those I'd say are probably obtainable if you throw enough wonga..

I think Rklok (on this forum also) has a Windy at the moment. He is located in the Netherlands, and ships abroad.
Got one of my Astro's from him. Great guy.

See more here http://forum.arcadeotaku.com/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=14296"

I would send him a MP if I were you.

rklok still has a Windy 2... I bought one off him two days ago. The one he still has is in amazing shape too! Original chassis is dead though.

I'd say both of those are relatively easy to obtain.

I would put forth:
- Taito Canary (*almost* got one a few years back...)
- Sega City
- Exceleena Blue
- Tecmo Kyotaro
- Tecmo Urban

Out of all of these, I really want the Canary. I can live without the rest.

Kinda unobtainable now but about 3 years ago I had the opportunity to buy an outrun upright that had only had around 300 odd plays!! :o
Was absolutely spotless both inside an out...backed out due to shipping costs from the states! :palm:
For gods sake, its a carton box - not the holy grail!

Seen the Cycraft cabinet on Ebay a couple of weeks ago but not including the 'F-Zero Monster Ride' game. You have to buy that from Andy. ;)
